2 Chronicles 7:1-22

Now when Solomon
<08010>
had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of praying
<06419> (8692)_,
the fire
<0784>
came down
<03381> (8804)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and consumed
<0398> (8799)
the burnt offering
<05930>
and the sacrifices
<02077>_;
and the glory
<03519>
of the LORD
<03068>
filled
<04390> (8804)
the house
<01004>_.
And the priests
<03548>
could
<03201> (8804)
not enter
<0935> (8800)
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
because the glory
<03519>
of the LORD
<03068>
had filled
<04390> (8804)
the LORD'S
<03068>
house
<01004>_.
And when all the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
saw
<07200> (8802)
how the fire
<0784>
came down
<03381> (8800)_,
and the glory
<03519>
of the LORD
<03068>
upon the house
<01004>_,
they bowed
<03766> (8799)
themselves with their faces
<0639>
to the ground
<0776>
upon the pavement
<07531>_,
and worshipped
<07812> (8691)_,
and praised
<03034> (8687)
the LORD
<03068>_,
[saying], For [he is] good
<02896>_;
for his mercy
<02617>
[endureth] for ever
<05769>_.
Then the king
<04428>
and all the people
<05971>
offered
<02076> (8802)
sacrifices
<02077>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
And king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
offered
<02076> (8799)
a sacrifice
<02077>
of twenty
<06242>
and two
<08147>
thousand
<0505>
oxen
<01241>_,
and an hundred
<03967>
and twenty
<06242>
thousand
<0505>
sheep
<06629>_:
so the king
<04428>
and all the people
<05971>
dedicated
<02596> (8799)
the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_.
And the priests
<03548>
waited
<05975> (8802)
on their offices
<04931>_:
the Levites
<03881>
also with instruments
<03627>
of musick
<07892>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which David
<01732>
the king
<04428>
had made
<06213> (8804)
to praise
<03034> (8687)
the LORD
<03068>_,
because his mercy
<02617>
[endureth] for ever
<05769>_,
when David
<01732>
praised
<01984> (8763)
by their ministry
<03027>_;
and the priests
<03548>
sounded trumpets
<02690> (8688) (8675) <02690> (8764)
before them, and all Israel
<03478>
stood
<05975> (8802)_.
{by their...: Heb. by their hand}
Moreover Solomon
<08010>
hallowed
<06942> (8762)
the middle
<08432>
of the court
<02691>
that [was] before
<06440>
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
for there he offered
<06213> (8804)
burnt offerings
<05930>_,
and the fat
<02459>
of the peace offerings
<08002>_,
because the brasen
<05178>
altar
<04196>
which Solomon
<08010>
had made
<06213> (8804)
was not able
<03201> (8804)
to receive
<03557> (8687)
the burnt offerings
<05930>_,
and the meat offerings
<04503>_,
and the fat
<02459>_.
Also at the same time
<06256>
Solomon
<08010>
kept
<06213> (8799)
the feast
<02282>
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_,
and all Israel
<03478>
with him, a very
<03966>
great
<01419>
congregation
<06951>_,
from the entering in
<0935> (8800)
of Hamath
<02574>
unto the river
<05158>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
And in the eighth
<08066>
day
<03117>
they made
<06213> (8799)
a solemn assembly
<06116>_:
for they kept
<06213> (8804)
the dedication
<02598>
of the altar
<04196>
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_,
and the feast
<02282>
seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_.
{a solemn...: Heb. a restraint}
And on the three
<07969>
and twentieth
<06242>
day
<03117>
of the seventh
<07637>
month
<02320>
he sent
<07971> (0)
the people
<05971>
away
<07971> (8765)
into their tents
<0168>_,
glad
<08056>
and merry
<02896>
in heart
<03820>
for the goodness
<02896>
that the LORD
<03068>
had shewed
<06213> (8804)
unto David
<01732>_,
and to Solomon
<08010>_,
and to Israel
<03478>
his people
<05971>_.
Thus Solomon
<08010>
finished
<03615> (8762)
the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>_:
and all that came
<0935> (8802)
into Solomon's
<08010>
heart
<03820>
to make
<06213> (8800)
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and in his own house
<01004>_,
he prosperously effected
<06743> (8689)_.
And the LORD
<03068>
appeared
<07200> (8735)
to Solomon
<08010>
by night
<03915>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, I have heard
<08085> (8804)
thy prayer
<08605>_,
and have chosen
<0977> (8804)
this place
<04725>
to myself for an house
<01004>
of sacrifice
<02077>_.
If
<02005>
I shut up
<06113> (8799)
heaven
<08064>
that there be no rain
<04306>_,
or if I command
<06680> (8762)
the locusts
<02284>
to devour
<0398> (8800)
the land
<0776>_,
or if I send
<07971> (8762)
pestilence
<01698>
among my people
<05971>_;
If my people
<05971>_,
which are called
<07121> (8738)
by my name
<08034>_,
shall humble
<03665> (8735)
themselves, and pray
<06419> (8691)_,
and seek
<01245> (8762)
my face
<06440>_,
and turn
<07725> (8799)
from their wicked
<07451>
ways
<01870>_;
then will I hear
<08085> (8799)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and will forgive
<05545> (8799)
their sin
<02403>_,
and will heal
<07495> (8799)
their land
<0776>_.
{which...: Heb. upon whom my name is called}
Now mine eyes
<05869>
shall be open
<06605> (8803)_,
and mine ears
<0241>
attent
<07183>
unto the prayer
<08605>
[that is made] in this place
<04725>_.
{unto...: Heb. to the prayer of this place}
For now have I chosen
<0977> (8804)
and sanctified
<06942> (8689)
this house
<01004>_,
that my name
<08034>
may be there for
<05704>
ever
<05769>_:
and mine eyes
<05869>
and mine heart
<03820>
shall be there perpetually
<03117>_.
And as for thee, if thou wilt walk
<03212> (8799)
before
<06440>
me, as David
<01732>
thy father
<01>
walked
<01980> (8804)_,
and do
<06213> (8800)
according to all that I have commanded
<06680> (8765)
thee, and shalt observe
<08104> (8799)
my statutes
<02706>
and my judgments
<04941>_;
Then will I stablish
<06965> (8689)
the throne
<03678>
of thy kingdom
<04438>_,
according as I have covenanted
<03772> (8804)
with David
<01732>
thy father
<01>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
There shall not fail
<03772> (8735)
thee a man
<0376>
[to be] ruler
<04910> (8802)
in Israel
<03478>_.
{There...: Heb. There shall not be cut off to thee}
But if ye turn away
<07725> (8799)_,
and forsake
<05800> (8804)
my statutes
<02708>
and my commandments
<04687>_,
which I have set
<05414> (8804)
before
<06440>
you, and shall go
<01980> (8804)
and serve
<05647> (8804)
other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_,
and worship
<07812> (8694)
them;
Then will I pluck them up by the roots
<05428> (8804)
out of my land
<0127>
which I have given
<05414> (8804)
them; and this house
<01004>_,
which I have sanctified
<06942> (8689)
for my name
<08034>_,
will I cast out
<07993> (8686)
of my sight
<06440>_,
and will make
<05414> (8799)
it [to be] a proverb
<04912>
and a byword
<08148>
among all nations
<05971>_.
And this house
<01004>_,
which is high
<05945>_,
shall be an astonishment
<08074> (8799)
to every one that passeth
<05674> (8802)
by it; so that he shall say
<0559> (8804)_,
Why hath the LORD
<03068>
done
<06213> (8804)
thus unto this land
<0776>_,
and unto this house
<01004>_?
And it shall be answered
<0559> (8804)_,
Because they forsook
<05800> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_,
which brought them forth
<03318> (8689)
out of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
and laid hold
<02388> (8686)
on other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_,
and worshipped
<07812> (8691)
them, and served
<05647> (8799)
them: therefore hath he brought
<0935> (8689)
all this evil
<07451>
upon them.
